Nobel Dzhugueli is the adviser to the Georgian talent Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Zzhugueli has clear ideas about what the future of his protégé could look like. “I am convinced that he will end up at Real Madrid or Bayern,” quoted the Estadio Deportivo the agent.
The 20-year-old midfielder had taken the 1-0 lead in the unfortunate defeat in the World Cup qualifying against Spain on Sunday, goals from Ferran Torres and Dani Olmo (90 + 2) averted the embarrassment for the Iberians. Kvaratskhelia had nevertheless increased its fame on the international stage.
He is currently under contract with Rubin Kazan in Russia and has scored three goals and eight assists in 20 games this season. He was always used as a left winger. His contract in Kazan does not end until 2024. But would the leap from little Kazan to Champions League winner come too early?

Record national player Thomas Müller campaigned for a regular place for Thomas Müller at the European Championships in the summer: “If the national coach Thomas Müller takes what I expect, I think that such a player must be seeded,” writes the 60-year-old in his Sky-Column.
Should Müller only sit on the bench, this would “only lead to unnecessary discussions and distract the structure from the essentials”. His two main reasons for a Müller nomination: “Quality and mentality. If he continues to play as he has before, there is no getting around him because of the quality. And a man with this experience and leadership strength belongs to the national team.”
At the European Championship, they no longer talk about games against “Romania or Iceland, but about Holland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, England or France”. If Müller is only used sporadically, this could become a problem, according to Matthäus: “Too many stars who think they have to play but only sit on the bench bring more unrest than success.”
Last but not least, Uli Hoeneß had made it clear that Müller would be subordinate to the team success in any case: “Thomas is hot for the national team. He will not be a smelly boot when he sits on the bench,” he said during the World Cup qualifier in Romania in his new role as TV expert RTL.
